Republicans Call Out 'Double Standard' Over Biden Classified Docs Hypocrisy

Congressional Republicans are crying foul over the double standard
applied to President Biden's mishandling of classified materials vs.
the treatment former President Trump received.

To review, President Biden's lawyers - who didn't have clearance to
view classified documents, allegedly stumbled upon a cache of them at
his old office at the Penn Biden Center on Nov. 2, 2022, the day
before midterm elections. After waiting nearly two months, more
documents were found on December 20, January 9 and January 12 - the
date on which AG Merrick Garland finally appointed a special counsel
to investigate.

Trump, on the other hand, who has a potential constitutional argument
that he could have declassified the documents recovered from his
locked safe at his highly surveilled Mar-a-Lago residence, was treated
to a raid by Biden's DOJ

"Where’s the raid of Biden’s garage?" asked House Majority Leader
Steve Scalise (R-LA).

    There’s always a double standard. @FBI, where’s the raid of Biden’s garage?

"Now, we learn that Biden kept additional classified materials at his
home in Delaware in his GARAGE. Yet there was no raid. No ransacking
of Biden’s home. Nothing,” Rep. Dan Crenshaw tweeted, trying to get
back in MAGA's good graces.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) called the situation "another faux
pas by the Biden administration," by "treating law differently based
upon your political beliefs."

"That’s why we had to provide a new entity from our Church-style
[committee] to look after the weaponization of what’s gone on that you
want an equal playing of the law to all Americans."

    McCarthy also pointed out the fact that officials have not
released any photos of the documents recovered from Biden’s office and
home. The Justice Department included a photo of materials retrieved
from Trump’s residence in a court filing that was made public. -The

"More classified documents Biden took from the Obama White House have
been found at Biden’s Delaware house next to his Corvette. Biden
assures the public it’s OK because his garage is locked… So, when’s
the FBI raid?" said Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) in a Thursday tweet.

Trump was also 'raided' by the media, so to speak.

right decision on that is going to be you can’t let this go ... you
can’t let it go without accountability.”

    . at MilesTaylorUSA: "This is a big national security concern ... It
is very likely the ex president will be indicted. After the indictment
... I worry that if the Republicans will retake the House and Senate,
they will try to find a way to give the ex-president amnesty."

And crickets over Biden aside from scant cardboard reporting on the matter.

In fact, CNN's Jake Tapper is earning his paycheck carrying water for
the regime:

    CNN asks Comer, who's trying to make a big deal out of Biden's
handling of classified documents, to explain a clip of him saying last
November that investigating Trump's mishandling of classified docs is
"not a priority" for him

Meanwhile, House Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) has sent
letters to the National Archives and the White House Counsel's office
requesting documents and communications pertaining to the classified
materials, along with a request for information about the documents
themselves and who may have been able to access them.

And Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH), the top GOP member of the House
Intelligence Committee, sent AG Garland and DNI Avril Haines a request
for a classified briefing about the documents.
